BreTard Club To Play The Winner
Of the Second Half For
Since going to psess last week the
base ball controversey over '“six

settled by splitting the seas<m into
two parts, the first part closing Aug
ust 14th. with Brevard winner of the
first part. The second half beginning
on August 14th. The winner of the
second half will play Brevard a series
of five or seven games to decide the
championship of the Western North

the second half are as follows:
Club Won Lost Pet.

Canton— 1 4 200
This includes games played to the
23rd of the month.
The first game of the new season
was forfeited to Asheville 9 to 0 on
account of the failure of the Brevard

The clean-up squad sent out by
Government A'gencies^ the Red Cross,
and the American Legion arrives in
Asheville, N. C., on Sept. 8 and will
establish hisadquarteys at Asheville.
The squad will remain here until Sept
14th during which time, the members
will work with one end in view and
that end is to get in touch with every
ex-service man, who has a claim a-
gainst.the government and set ma
chinery in motion to get quick and
satisfactory adjustment of that claim.
The paramount idea of the clean
up squad is to cut the red tape that
has prevented hundrers of disabled
veterans and ex-service men from re
ceiving the compensation, which the
government is anxious to give. In
th:s work the Red Cross and the Le
gion have every assurance from the
provernment that complete coopera
tion will be given.
Under the plan of campaign of the
Squad, its members who are thorough
ly familiar with the War Risk Insur- !
ance Act anj the Vocational Rehabi- j
litation Act, will gel in personal touch :
with every man v/ho has a claim or j

By special request of the publish

about my trip in the middle west.
I left Brevard early in September^

It clames to have one of the three
largest graduate colleges among all
the state universities. Those who
are candidates for the higher degi’ees
have many conveniences th^ younger
students do not have, i-^ach depart
ment assigns a study room for these
advanced students where they .ire ex
pected to discuss among ih'imselves
the problems most interesting to them
in their particular line of work. Each
one has his own <!esk in the room
located conveniently near the De
partmental Library and the office of
the Dean or head of that department.
The University of Iowa is built a-
round the building which was until
1847 the Territorial Capitol. This
was a small but very attractive
building built on a hill over-looking
the Iowa river. The city seems to
have been laid out with this building
as a center. Iowa Avenue runs east
and west, showing the Capitol Build
ing in its center, and Capitol Avenue
runs north and south from it. The
other streets seem to have been ori
ginally laid off pai’alell. v/ith these
though a very fevv^ streets have been
laid out in the e.'iges of the ^wn
which do not run regularly. The
town has a population of about
twelve thousand and the student body
is about forty-five hundred.
The agricultral situation in Iowa
is pitible. A great many young men
bought farms early in 1920 in many
cases giviixg their notes foi a large
part of the purchase price. The sud
den, enormous drop in the price of
ail farm products left such men in
an exceedingly unenviable position,
and their depression necessarily ef
fects all business. There are some
factories in Iowa but it is largely an
a'^ricuitural state. This summer has
been an unusually hot one. There
has been hardly enough raiia and still
such'as they have had has usually
come at such times that it .helped tlie
crops the most and they ought to
produce a great deal of food this
On my way home sinc?^ the first
of August I visited two men who will
be rememfcored by many of our citi
zens. Ir Chicago I spent a zsight in
the home of Mr. 'and Mrs. Edwin
Jones. Mrs. Jones was* Miss Emma
Erannock of Guilford County and
was graduated from Brevard Institute
in 190S. Mr. Jones was* assistant
principal liere that year.
Mr. Jones is now a Certifi^ Public
Accountant in Chicago ahl is ,doing
a large business. He lives.in a very
attractive home in Oak P^rk, which
is one of the best residential suburbs
of Chicago. He drove me about
forty miles through the city, at least
ninety-five per cent of this journey
being over the wonderful boulevard-

His family and that of my brother
Leonard, who occupied the Methodist
pulpit in Brevard one day last fall,
went with m.e one afternoon to at

half mile out into the lake. It is

spectacular development of Chicago.

On niy way from Chicaga I took
dinner in the home of Dr. and Mrs.
S. N. Jones, the parents of Edwin,
Will and Alice, all of whom have
been connected with Brevard Insti
tute. Will and Alice were students
here in 1909^ and l>oth made a re
markable impress upon the school and
the community. Will was and is,
$100000.00 in the construction of the
road between Pickens and Rosman.
It will take two years to complete the
road from South Carolina to Rosman.

phere where work seems natural and
enjoyable. The improvements in the
town are very noticeable to one who
has been away for a year. The new
side-walks the new jail, the practic
ally new court house, the new build
ings, the strengthened civic activi
ties and the robust appearance of
nearly all of the citizens all make a
home coming enjoyable.
In my own position the develop
ments of Brevard Institute in the
year seem almost marvelous. I knew
that Mr. Orr in his native ability,
his education F.nu his experience as
a teacher was thorougnly qualified
to t^kc up the responsibilities of the
school but I never had opportunity
to observe his tact, his business a-
bility and his progrcssiveness to any!
such degree as I can see these quali- 1
ties as I return to ray worh. It would ■
that this will be one of the great days
in the history of this church.
On next Sunday evening,. Aug. S8,
at 8:00 o’clock^ Rev. Chas. C. Smith,
the pastpr, will preach on “Bible San
ctif.cation,” this being the last in a
series of four sennons on some of
the fundamentals of the' Christian
Many have been puzzled to know
what to think about sanctification in
this day and many more have very
hazy ideas about it, while still others
have exceedingly erroneous ideas con
cerning this doctrine which is truly
taught in the Scriptures.
A cordial invitation is extended the
rnbiic to attend thi^ service, and also
to do about connecting the North
Carolina side which has length of 6 1>
2 miles as they did not want to spend
$300.00.00 without assurances fro^i

The Road Commisioners of our
county assured the South Carolina
Commisioners that they never had
any other intention other than to
build the connecting link as the peo
ple of our County regard the Pickens
county connection as one of the most
important roads.' When this road is
completed it will put Brevard 100
miles nearer Atlanta than at the pre
sent time, which means that all upper
South Carolina will use this road
when complete4. There are hundreds
of families in upper South Carolina
